Terrific, thanks @fr34k. I’ll probably try on an external drive install first. Personally I’m just looking for CUDA/compute, not driving a display, but I’ll plug one in and test, if I can get it running initially!

OK. You've got 3 options:
Clean install macOS and start anew
Revert from Time Machine Backup (copy your changed files [Documents etc...] to external drive, revert, copy back)
Or 

  1. Use the recover option of the purge-wrangler.sh
  2. and execute bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/learex/macOS-eGPU/master/macOS-eGPU.sh) --uninstall to uninstall the rest.

NOTE: If you have done anything else eGPU related, Option 1/2 might be the only solution. Report if you've done more to your system. It will get more intricate the more you've done...

@fr34k: Findings so far. Script installed fine, rebooted, logged in, connected GPU. Recognised, but then lots of screen-going-black (on my iMac's screen). Finally settled, with a black screen on the external display (but it was powered on), iMac working normally. 

I then logged out - black screen for quite a while, then the external screen showed the login screen. The internal screen was black, but showed a mouse cursor. Logged in, same - external display is fine, internal is black.

I'll continue testing, see if i can get it running 100%.

Setup: Late 2014 iMac 5k / TB2, Sonnet eGPU 550, 1080TI with external monitor attached.

That's how things are done! I generally recommend people to disable updates when using eGPU with NVIDIA. Apples loves breaking existing hacks, as we've seen with 10.13.4. There are always people with either a lot of time or a "spare system" that can test hacks before they run it on their daily drivers.

I hope I can get this running nicely - seeing a 10% increase in raw compute with Metal Smile

I added the warning about not working monitors at the bottom. It's no satisfying solution but for someone who cannot downgrade for whatever reason it might be the only option.

Do you recommend me to run your script  or should I try out a few other things before I run it.

Thank you in advance

well, it's "state of the art" aka we don't know yet how to fix things otherwise... so definitely no.
but I cannot emphasize 
enough how important a backup is.

I installed webdrivers, then installed the NVIDIA gpu support. After the first crashed I tried installing other versions of the webdriver. Finally I tried the Wrangler-Setup mentioned in this Thread  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/wip-nvidia-egpu-support-for-high-sierra/paged/40/#post-33499

Sure! Maybe I will try out a few other things today and use your script (after taking a backup) in case things don't work out.

My setup was working with an older card (GTX 1070). Just that it does not seem to detect my new GTX 1050Ti.

Thanks for your help!
